The general basis for admission to universities and university colleges in Norway is called Higher Education Entrance Qualification. For applicants with foreign education, the requirements are specified in the GSU-list by NOKUT (the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education).
To see the requirements for your country of origin, please look at the GSU-list on NOKUT's website. Download the PDF-file or select your country on the bottom of the page to find the relevant requirements. Note that both education requirements and language requirements (English) must be fulfilled. See more information about the English requirement on the page.
All required documents must be uploaded digitally to your online application. Make sure to upload both transcripts and diplomas.
The fees are currently at 3600 NOK per semester, of which 3000 NOK are a tuition fee to FIUC and the remaining 600 NOK cover the semester fee. The semester fee of 600 NOK also grants students membership in the Student Welfare Organization of Oslo (SiO) with all their benefits included. The fees are paid upon semester registration in August and January.
When can I expect a reply?
After April 15th, all international applicants can expect a reply. Depending on how many applications we have received, the process will take 5-10 business days. All applicants should receive a reply no later than May 1st.
What are the next steps if I’m admitted?
If you have been accepted at FIUC, the following steps describe your way forward:
- You must accept your offer within the time limit mentioned on your admission letter. You can register “Yes” or “No” by logging in to your application.
- If you need to apply for a residence permit to study at FIUC, you must contact the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI). Please note: Admission doesn’t guarantee that your visa application will be granted. Should your application for a residence permit be denied, please contact FIUC and inform us that you will not be able to attend the course. See more information about visa and residence permit on the Study in Norway website.
- Applicants from outside EU/EEA may need to make a monetary deposit to a designated deposit account.
- Once you’ve accepted the offer and your student data is registered at FIUC, you will receive information on how to complete your semester registration in our Studentweb system. The registration includes both signing up for classes and paying the required fees. Students at FIUC generate their own invoice in Studentweb. Failure to complete the semester registration within the September 1st will result in revocation of your student right.
What do I do if I’m waitlisted?
Both our one-year and three-year programmes can only admit a certain number of students. If there are more applicants than vacancies, the applicants will be listed based on their GPA scores from the provided documents and other ranking regulations. The students with the best scores will receive an admission, while the others will be placed on a waiting list.
If you are placed on a waiting list, you can either forfeit your place on the list, or wait and see if you are accepted at a later point. All applicants on the waiting list who get accepted at a later point will be notified.
For questions regarding the application process, please contact our Higher Executive Officer, Mr. Ingar T. Hauge (email@example.com). For questions regarding the study programme, registration or general questions regarding the student life at FIUC, please contact our Student Adviser, Mr. Aage Myksvoll (firstname.lastname@example.org).
